Why would would the Fed skyrocket interest rates if the economy is still struggling?

My bad. I meant long-term interest rates, as in not enough people want the long bond. Maybe we wind up with a 4% short rate and a 7% long rate over the election. Of course, those are just numbers pulled out of my..., and not based on any real calculation.
